The 81-year-old went on to say that before the World T20, there will be changes in the squad. “I assure you that before the World T20, there will be changes,” said Shaharyar.
The experienced administrator also said that there will be no scapegoats during the accountability, but believes it is necessary as the common public feels let down. “Common public feels lets down, and we also feel the same,” said Shaharyar. “ But there won't be a witch-hunt and there won’t be any scapegoat.”
